About Front Derailleurs
Various derailleur systems were designed and built as far back as the late 1800s. A French bicycle tourist, writer and cycling promoter Paul De Vivie (1853-1930), invented a two speed rear derailleur in 1905 which he used on forays into the Alps, and we wonder if 20 gears are enough. Since then there has been many advancements in the number of gears, materials and reductions in weight. Wiggle lists a large selection of front and rear derailleurs catering for double and triple systems with 7, 8, 9, 10 and even 11 speed cassettes.

Do i need to replace anything else to make it work
I don't believe the BB standard has any influence - the issues are to do with shifter cable throw, chainring stiffness, and chainring pin, ramp and tooth profile. From my experience, any issues here are massively outweighed by the improvements in the derailleur compared to the old one (which was frankly disappointing).
I've just confirmed it myself (and have just reviewed it on Wiggle), but have a look at
